She is Beautiful. She is MARVELous. She is the ENDGAME (Captain Marvel movie review)
Well, we agree with Nick Fury because even we haven’t seen anything like her. Introducing the strongest Avenger of MCU- CAPTAIN MARVEL. There couldn’t be a better start to the wave of female superheroes than Captain Marvel in MCU. If you are an MCU fan, this movie is on the must-see list. The message is as strong as the storyline of the movie- No matter how many times you fall in life, what matters most is not giving up and getting right back up every single time. The movie was worth the wait. It is two hours of pure female empowerment tied with fantastic visuals which are kind of implied in Marvel movies. Also, the tribute to legendary Stan Lee at the starting of the movie is worth the applause.
Brie Larson as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel is powerful, fierce, and effortlessly cool after all grunge suits her. She is a pilot turned space warrior trying to discover who she really is. She is a member of Kree military team Starforce, trying to learn to control her power with the help of her mentor Yon-Rogg played by Jude Law. We learn about Carol at the same gradual pace that she does through well-executed- interesting- narrative by Skrull leader Talos invading Carol’s memories. After a mission gone wrong, she finds herself on Earth- a planet referred by Kree as C-53. Here she becomes the acquaintance of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), a 3rd level SHIELD agent with two eyes and lesser facial lines. Also, Carol and Maria’s relationship gives the film a beautiful emotional core. Wondering what is the role of Mar-Vell? For that you need to watch the movie because this is a spoiler free review. Oh! Sorry for not mentioning it earlier but did you notice the fact that Fury got the idea to name ‘The Protector Initiative’ as ‘The Avengers Initiative’ from an old photo of Carol with the caption, “Carol ‘Avenger’ Danvers.” After a pause, he re-titles his proposal: Although we don’t actually see him type it up, we know he opts for Carol’s old call sign. Thus, the Avengers Initiative is born.
The ‘90s beats of Hole, Elastica, and Nirvana sets the beat right. The full-blown explosion-driven space battles in ‘Star Wars’ style will blow your mind and will keep you hooked because it is mesmerizing to see Carol flies in space, clad in her blue, red and golden suit, leaving a luminous trail across the sky wherever she goes. “You know you’re glowing, right?” Fury asks Carol at one point. Also, the comic reference of Mohawk. Not everything in Captain Marvel is what it appears. There are a couple of twists you won’t necessarily see coming. And yes, the Flerken Goose steals every single scene. Can Goose get a movie of her own? Because it would be delightful to watch her. Captain Marvel is a fresh take by featuring a solo female protagonist headlining her own movie, co-directed by a female director. Instead of telling a linear story about the events that transpire in which an ordinary human becomes a superhero, Captain Marvel introduces a character with powers and features her diving into her past in order to move forward which is a new spin on the typical origin story.
And how could this article not talk about the post credit scenes? Yes, there are 2 post-credit scenes. The first is a major Avengers: Endgame clue which would definitely make you go ‘OHHH!!!’ and ‘AHHH!!!’ and the second one merely to clear the confusion of all the Marvel fans who have questions about the appearance of Tesseract. Like mentioned after the credits role ‘Captain Marvel will return in the Avengers: Endgame’. Just have the patience for we’ll get more of Captain Marvel when she’ll arrive to kick Thanos’s decimation and save the Avengers in Avengers: Endgame.
